WorkHorse® Cut-Resistant Gloves

Whenever working meticulously with a sharp knife, such as breaking down a whole fish, we recommend the use of Cut-Resistant Gloves to protect your hands from incidental cuts and injury. These gloves are constructed of a unique blend of high-performance fibers and stainless steel for enhanced protection of the hands and wrists. Please note that these gloves are cut-resistant, but are not cut- or puncture-proof. Do not subject them to moving or highly serrated blades.  

WorkHorse® Metal Mesh Gloves

Our WorkHorse® Metal Mesh Gloves are the longest lasting, safest, most comfortable mesh glove – at the lowest cost! The heavy gauge stainless steel rings are machine welded to give the longest lasting protection against cuts and lacerations. These gloves are ideal for protection in applications such as breaking down shellfish, where sharp knives can slip under pressure and cause severe injury to the hands. It’s important to note that these gloves are cut-resistant but not puncture-proof.
